Knock – unlock your Mac without a password using your iPhone and Apple Watch
By Knock Software, Inc
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Knock and Apple Watch: a match made in heaven. Knock 2.0 makes unlocking your Mac faster and more secure than ever.
You keep your iPhone with you all the time. Now you can use it as a password. You never even have to open the app— just knock on your phone twice, even when it’s in your pocket, and you're in. And if you have an Apple Watch, you can unlock your Mac right from your wrist.
Using Knock won't drain your iPhone's battery, even if you use it all day every day. Knock securely communicates with your Mac using Bluetooth Low Energy, a new technology that draws very little power.
BEFORE PURCHASING KNOCK, PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR MAC IS COMPATIBLE IN THE SCREENSHOT BELOW.

What's New in Version 2.0.2
- Fixes a bug that could cause Knock to fail to connect when your Mac is locked.
Really slow detection of iPhone app
Too slow to be useful
I wanted this to work but it doesn't
The developer had been very responsive, but after several weeks of fiddling with various settings, un-linking and linking, restarting, etc. I am unable to make this work reliably beyond the first time it connects. Within a short time it stops working and I have to restart it, unlink, link, etc. It's just not worth it. I just grabbed MacID and am hopeful it will be more reliable. None of the reviewer complaints I've seen (much too late) here.
Works WHEN IT WANTS and then still only "kinda"
1) IF you can get this installed and working 2) if the computer senses either phone or watch (about 50/50 it can tell by itself to my needing to fire up the app) 3) IF the knocking works (it doesn't I havw to do it twice every time I set it up. Aka take the $5 and buy a virtual peice of %#*# bec that will be more valuable
